Pre-Teen Fabric Choices

What do you do with fabric chosen by an eleven year old granddaughter? It wasn't quite to my taste, but I wanted to use it so I could tell her what I did with it. There were enough fat quarters to make two small quilts. One went to Project Linus, which my granddaughter thought was pretty cool. The other went back to her this weekend. She thought that was even cooler! Granddaughter #4 seems to approve of it, too.

Carol Taylor Is Coming

Renowned quilt artist Carol Taylor will be a guest lecturer at the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild's meeting at 7PM on Friday May 21, 2010 at the First Presbyterian Church on Main Street in Wellsboro, PA. The lecture Sew Many Quilts, So Little Time will be a retrospective of Carol's quilting career showing how she produced over 500 quilts (many of them award-winning) since she began in 1993. The lecture is free and open to the public.

The following day (May 22, 2010) Carol will be teaching a full-day workshop called Sensuous Lines and Curves. The cost of the workshop is $50 for MLQG members and $60 for non-members. A few spaces remain in the Saturday workshop, so if you are interested in signing up or if you need more information about the workshop, please visit the MLQG's website and use the "Contact Us" link.

You can see many of Carol's quilts in the gallery section of her website. And be sure to go to her Biography page, then scroll to the bottom and click on "Behind Closed Doors in Carol's Studio" to see a quilt studio that IS TO DIE FOR!

Guerrilla Knitting

I'm waiting for someone in Wellsboro to start this on the gaslights along Main Street...or perhaps on the ironwork around the Wynken, Blynken, and Nod statue on the Green...

Is there anyone among us who is brave enough?
